Filmmaker John Waters exploded into infamy with this darkly comic classic, in which cross-dresser Divine stars as Babs Johnson, a criminal in hiding from the FBI in a trailer outside of Baltimore, Maryland. Accompanying Babs are her mother (Edith Massey), a dim-witted woman who is obsessed with eggs; her son Crackers (Danny Mills); and Cotton (Mary Vivian Pierce), Babs's "travelling companion" and Crackers' co-conspirator in unwholesome play.]]>

The action begins when Connie and Raymond Marble (Mink Stole and David Lochary, respectively) become involved in a huge fight with Babs Johnson, a.k.a. Divine (Divine) over who is the filthiest person alive. The Marbles even hire a spy, Cookie (Cookie Mueller) to get them the dirt (no pun intended) on Divine and her family. Divine lives in a broken down trailer home in the woods. Divine's crazy son Crackers (Danny Mills), her mentally challenged, egg loving mother Edie (Edith Massey) and her good friend Cotton (Mary Vivian Pearce) live with her.
The Marbles start to torture Divine and her family not just with a spy but also with the lovely (ahem) package they send to Divine--a piece of "number two." Of course it's only a matter of time before Divine and her family attack the Marble's home; and The Marbles attack Divine's home.
Be prepared--this is no movie for the squeamish. There are scenes of (ahem) rather unusual modes of love making, human mutilation, and there's the infamous scene at the end in which Divine eats a dog's you-know-what. Actually, the last scene is so talked about it came off as slightly less (well, very slightly less) repugnant than I thought it would be.
The movie was made on a very, very low budget, so if you want great cinematography and choreography, look elsewhere.Read more ›
People, this movie is SUPPOSED TO BE GROSS, IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE DISGUSTING, IT DELIBERATELY HAS BAD ACTING...all these things make this movie so appealing. The main character is a transvestite, her son has a chicken sex fetish, the mother is obsessed with eating eggs and lives in a play pen, the villains have red and blue hair and keep girls impregnated by their chauffeur locked in the basement...how could it get any better??
I laugh harder everytime I see this movie and I'm sure anyone with a sense of humour will strongly agree and find it equally as amusing!
I am honestly beyond terrified and at the same time aroused by this movie. First off, this might be old but this movie is over the top even by todays standards. Definitly for those with a STRONG stomach. No exageration intended. Over-all, storywise, it's ok.
Cannibalism, Incest, Beastality, $h!t-eating (seriously), Live homocide, Cross dressing...all in this movie...oh yea and a fat chick in a play-pen for the majority of the film.
All I have left to say is I will have trouble sleeping the next few days trying to get all this explicit imagery out of my head (my head is f-ed up enough without this movie).
Back on April 2nd of 2014, Pink Flamingos was shown at the Dryden Theater. The whole room reeked of weed, and we all laughed the entire way movie. I can without a doubt confirm that this movie, like The Rocky Horror Picture Show, must be viewed in a theater to be fully enjoyed...and the viewer must be very baked!

Its an okay movie. Its overall purpose is for shock value, and in the 70's a lot of these acts were considered shocking. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Pumpkin Toss
This is definitely not for kids. It's so sick, many adults are deeply disturbed by it. For others who don't mind a disgusting "ratchet" movie (in today's vernacular), watch... Read morePublished 2 months ago by Dolores Llamas

A classic dark comedy. Recommended to anyone who can't get enough sleaze. It's funny because of how absurd it is and that's what makes it great.Published 5 months ago by Heather
